Good, Bad, and Then Good News! After Mondays trip where things didn't go as planned and needing a new trolling motor remote things started out good. I went on line found the remote I needed. It was said to be in stock so I ordered. Thought about spending the extra bucks to have it over night shipped, but with Tuesday to be windy and Wednesday a good chance of evening thunder storms I went for regular shipping that would get it to me by the weekend.
Looked at my emails Tuesday afternoon and they said it was out of stock and might take a couple of weeks to have it back in stock. (The Bad) Bent out of shape I grabbed my remote that was not working very well and took it a part, cleaned the heck out of it with de-natured alcohol and got it to now work like new, so I can now get back on the water when the weather permits and wait for the one on order to be my new back up. (Good Again)
Also good news was that one of my past chart clients was down on vacation and dropped off some hand carved popping flies for me to test out. (More Good) Here is what they look like and I am sure they will catch. Now all I need is a good tide, some nice weather and the fish to co-operate.
